Updated marriage law guidance for the clergy has been issued by the Faculty Office

A Third Supplement to the Guidance for the Clergy (the “Yellow Book”) from the Faculty Office has now been issued. This Supplement is intended to be read alongside the 3rd edition of the Faculty Office marriage guide booklet published in 2010. It provides an important update to those areas where there have been changes in the law since March 2015 (when the Second Supplement was issued), especially on the topic of marriages of non-UK/Irish nationals in the Church of England and the recent changes to the process of marriage registration. The Third Supplement is available to download by clicking here. Read our ‘guidance for the clergy’ page to download the First Supplement or to buy a copy of the 2010 booklet (3rd edition).
